Ambulance driver who allegedly blew through St. Mary’s County bridge traffic had prior vehicular manslaughter conviction: report

The St. Mary’s County sheriff’s office is considering charges against an ambulance driver who blew through traffic on a narrow bridge, swiping a vehicle – but it won’t be Brian Patrick Bowen’s first brush with the law, according to local reports.

SouthernMarylandNewsNet.com reports that the 35-year-old Calvert County man was convicted of two counts of vehicular manslaughter, second-degree assault, and reckless driving in 2007.

Bowen was involved in a crash that year that took the lives of two people, and seriously injured another.

Video surfaced earlier in the week showing the ambulance barreling down the middle of a two-lane bridge. At least one vehicle was damaged during the incident.

The Solomons Volunteer Rescue and Fire Department Chief told SMNewsnet.com that Bowen was suspended following the stunt.
